The practise across the Internet is that, majority of the usage is
local/regional and a small % is outer-region to support expansion or

Pretty much all LIR in all regions operate at a local scale and a few with
massive economies of scale expand out especially the so called hyperscalers
and tier-1 providers so to speak.
